I Haven't been the biggest fan of the A7 series

being very cold on the A7r and lukewarm on the A7.

I have to say though that the A7 Mk II has surprised me. It still doesn't have the fast AF which would make it killer in shorter focal lengths, but it has a number of very promising changes that add up to a much more functional and useful camera than the A7. In particular, but not exclusively, this includes stabilisation and the ergonomic changes. The camera has great image quality - it has an almost supernatural sharpness of results combined with just being a faster, more comfortable and more fun camera. Since the firmware update, the video is fantastic too.

A plea from me to Sony though. Please don't listen to those who want all primes to be F1.4. My favourite lens remains the F2.8 35mm and the system begs for more small primes like this. Not everyone wants shallow DOF and frankly, if the lenses are huge, people might as well get a DSLR.
